Taking up the entirety of the Amsterdam RAI, and with last year’s attendance ďŹ gure of nearly 60,000 expected to be exceeded, ISE 2016 – the 13th edition of Integrated Systems Europe – is poised to be the biggest to date. It’s hard to summarise the wide variety of events and attractions there in a small space, but one thing seems to keep recurring – the number four. Four days: For the ďŹ rst time in its 13-year history, the ISE exhibition will run across four days, from Tuesday 9 February to Friday 12 February. As Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated

Conferences p12

Systems Events, explains on page 4, this is in response to demand from exhibitors to be able to spend more time with attendees during the show. It is hoped that the move will also lead to a more level attendance pattern, with less of the middle-day peak that occurred with the threeday model. Among the innovations for the Friday is the Closing Keynote, which will be given by renowned futurist Dr Michio Kaku. Turn to page 18 to ďŹ nd out about him, and the FRDY@ ISE initiative. Four editions of the ISE Daily: The ISE Daily, the official newspaper of

ISE 2016, is growing with the show; it will be published each morning, Tuesday to Friday. As always, it will be produced by our team of writers, photographers and editors from an office just off the show oor in the Amsterdam RAI and printed overnight. Four Show Floor Theatres: Once again, attendees can catch up with the latest developments in key technology areas courtesy of ISE’s Show Floor Theatres. The range of topics available has been expanded by the addition this year of the Audio Solutions Theatre (sponsored by Tannoy) in Hall 7. This joins the

line-up of Theatres that will be familiar to attendees from previous years: the Residential Solutions Theatre (sponsored by KNX) in Hall 5, the Commercial Solutions Show Theatre (sponsored by KNX) in Hall 8) and the UniďŹ ed Communications Theatre (sponsored by Crestron) in Hall 9. Find out more on page 26. Four conferences: Following the success of their events at ISE last year, four conference producers are returning to the RAI with new themes and new speakers. For its third outing at ISE, the Smart Building Conference will look at the interface between AV and IT,

Professional Development p29

with its theme ‘The network is the building’. Produced by Connessioni, Audio Forum will provide a detailed examination of some of the myths surrounding pro-audio technology. Following its successful debut last year, the Capital Summit, hosted by Stiernberg Consulting and MediaBridge Capital Advisors, will once again bring together the worlds of AV and electronic systems companies on one hand and investments, mergers and acquisitions on the other. Finally, SVG Europe will host the Sports Venue Technology Integration Summit, which will look at the changing technology requirements of the contemporary connected stadium. Turn to page 12 to learn more about this exciting conference line-up. And we haven’t mentioned the show’s new emphasis on the world of IT, the Drone Arena, extensive professional development sessions from CEDIA and InfoComm International and from exhibitors, the addition of an Audio-themed show oor area‌ You can ďŹ nd out about all of these and more in the pages of this Preview Edition of the ISE Daily.

04 OPINION: ISE

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Counting down the days to the first ever four-day ISE Mik ke Blacckma an, managing director of Integrated Systems Events, sets the scene for the biggest ever ISE and outlines some of the show’s firsts As we approach the 13th Integrated Systems Europe, we look forward to an action-packed four days at the Amsterdam RAI. Every year we arrive at the show dates with renewed excitement and anticipation. As soon as the curtain fell on last year’s ISE, we committed to planning ISE 2016 and to looking at ways of improving what we offer exhibitors and attendees. One of the standout changes this year is, of course, the addition of the fourth day, which sees ISE grow from three days to four days for the first time in its history. The conversation about this change has been ongoing for some time and now that it’s here, we’re confident it will be a very positive move. ISE started out, in its first year, with 120 exhibitors. This year we will welcome more than 1,000. Between 2008 and 2014, our net floor space grew from 18,600sqm to just over 36,000sqm. In 2016, the show’s footprint will be 44,000sqm. We now occupy almost all of the space available to us in the Amsterdam RAI. The show has grown to such a size that attendees need more time for meetings, for stand visits and for forging and refreshing important business relationships. As the attendance figure has grown and grown, reaching almost 60,000 in 2015, it was obvious that something would need to change. More space would be needed to meet exhibitor demand and a larger window of time would be necessary to accommodate the volume of attendees. Not only is ISE expanding to four days, the show floor has grown by approximately 11% in comparison to last year. These changes will help to answer an increasing number of requests from exhibitors that want more time to spend with attendees. At the same time, the overall attendance, which we expect to increase again this year, will be spread over a larger show floor and across four days instead of three. Consultation with exhibitors and attendees has formed the backbone of this move. That was very important. Of course we have our own ambitions for the show, but the one ambition that underpins everything that we do is delivering better experiences and more value for our customers. I’m sure you can

Pre evie ew Edition 2016

relate to that within the context of your own business. As organisers, we absolutely do not underestimate the significance of adding an extra day to the show. We understand the impact that it will have on exhibitors and we take the responsibility of making it a success very seriously. New opportunities Re-defining ISE as a four-day show instead of a three-day show has given us a chance to look at new ideas and opportunities. With that in mind, we have introduced some concepts and additions to the show that are brand new for this year. That includes our Closing Keynote, taking place on Friday morning, which will be presented by Dr Michio Kaku. Dr Kaku is a futurist, populariser of science, and theoretical physicist, as well as a bestselling author. He is the co-founder of string field theory and continues Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory. His keynote promises to be a compelling insight into how technological developments will help to shape the future. Another first for ISE 2016 is the Drone Arena. Hosted by Stampede Global, the new area will welcome leading drone manufacturers, and will deliver a programme of presentations and demonstrations. Drone technology opens up a number of opportunities to the AV market; we expect this to be the start of an important growth trend for the industry. This year, we’re also shining a light on another exciting development in the AV industry – the increasing prominence of IT within it, as AV technologies continue to be much more network-centric. Two worlds that were once quite separate have joined forces to create intelligent products and intelligent solutions. Our focus, then, is on consolidating this development and making it more accessible by driving awareness that ISE is an important show for IT professionals. These are just a few of the developments that you’ll see at ISE 2016. There are many more. We have more than 1,000 exhibitors that are poised to unveil the very latest innovations, including a number international launches. Our Show Floor

06 OPINION: INFOCOMM INTERNATIONAL

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Help raise the bar on quality David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, executive director and CEO, InfoComm International, discusses how companies across Europe are helping to raise quality across the industry – and ISE 2016 provides an opportunity for you to do the same To some, it comes as news that InfoComm International, which runs the largest AV trade show in North America, also co-owns Integrated Systems Europe, held annually in Amsterdam. What also comes as news to some is the fact that InfoComm does more than hold trade shows; it also offers education, certification, standards, member events, and more – all over the world, including Europe. And seeing the effects firsthand is a fulfilling job. Late last year, I travelled around Europe on behalf of InfoComm, in the company of Terry Friesenborg, CTS, our chief global officer, and Pamela Taggart, CTS, our senior director of development for Europe. I’ve visited Europe many times in my role with InfoComm, but this trip was designed to start a fresh dialogue with key parts of the AV industry around the continent, where we’ve found pockets of passionate InfoComm supporters – for example, throughout the United Kingdom – but where overall engagement with our association is somewhat limited. Some of that has to do with the nature of the European AV market, which is the second largest in the world, according to InfoComm’s Global Market Definition and Strategy Study. In fact, it’s difficult to talk about Europe as a single marketplace because every country has its own constraints and opportunities (and, often, language). InfoComm’s effort to provide service to European companies includes connecting with them where they work and thanking them for their commitment to industry excellence. If you’ll indulge me, I’d like to describe what we found on our most recent visit.

LOCAL EXPERTISE We started in Prague with member company AV Media, which joined InfoComm in 1996. CEO David Lesch, CTS serves on InfoComm’s European Council and his integration firm has embraced education and certification as part of its strategic plan. The company employs nearly 50 Certified Technology Specialists (CTS) who attest to the fact that raising their level of expertise and professionalism benefits both their company and them personally. Sitting in a room in Prague with CTS holders who live professional AV every day is a gratifying experience. It gives me a chance to reconnect with the industry and reminds my

Pre evie ew Edition 2016

team what really matters – that InfoComm’s job is to advance AV as an industry worldwide. And members like AV Media project their expertise to the local market. While we were in Prague, AV Media and two other AV companies held a special event for about 100 attendees – a miniature ISE, if you will – during which they educated the AV community about technology and trends. Our next stop was the beautiful town of Lindlar, Germany, near Cologne, for a visit with Lang AG, one of Europe’s largest AV rental, distribution and service companies, and its CEO Tobias Lang. The company was dedicating a new facility, the Lang Forum, which is like an AV playground – an innovation lab for demonstrating what is possible with today’s systems. AV executives from around Europe attended, appreciating Lang’s curved 4K display and collaboration technologies. The Lang campus is a perfect example of how content, space, and technology create exceptional collaborative experiences and, frankly, serves as a reminder of how cool the AV industry is today. From Lindlar, we headed to Oslo, Norway, a country where about one-quarter of European CTS holders lives. We had a chance to meet with a few leading Nordic AV companies and InfoComm members, including Viju (22 CTS holders), Caverion (16), and Atea (11). Based on the relative size of the Nordic AV market, you might not guess there are so many CTS holders in the region. Give a lot of the credit to member company Leteng AS, based in Oslo, which has worked with InfoComm to license some of our training curricula and translate it into Norwegian. By doing so, Leteng can offer AV courses in students’ native language and set them down a path towards certification. In Norway and elsewhere in Europe, InfoComm is starting to see a virtuous cycle of CTS adoption as a differentiator among AV integrators. Company A starts to offer the training, so Company B follows suit; Company B encourages workers to raise their game, so Company C does the same. As a result, over time, the industry elevates itself in terms of technical competence and quality designs. The value of the products and the solutions they bring to customers grows, which allows them to charge

‘Take advantage of the extra day and delve deeper into what makes you and your company successful’

more for superior service, invest more in technology and training, and continue the cycle as the AV industry around them grows more prominent. In those few quick stops – on one of many visits to Europe – we were able to see the impact InfoComm has on people and companies, and in turn the impact our members have on customers through the excitement their solutions create. Investments in quality lead to sustainable business models.

MORE TIME AT THE RAI ISE in Amsterdam offers an opportunity for all AV companies. Yes, companies are in the throes

of commoditisation and face challenges of competition and price pressure. But the AV industry in Europe continues to raise the bar and succeed. ISE is a global gathering of AV professionals, now spanning four days. Many people try to get everything they can out of ISE in a day or so. My hope is you’ll spend more time at the RAI and find ways to do what the companies I visited recently have done: invest your time and energy in professional development, whether it’s through InfoComm, our partners at CEDIA, or the record number of exhibitors you’ll find on the show floor. You’ll already be there. Maximise your ROI in ways you

haven’t at previous ISE shows. There will be plenty of stunning new technology to experience, as there always is at ISE. But take advantage of the extra day and delve deeper into what makes you and your company successful, whether it’s attending an InfoComm class, a half-day conference, or even a 20-minute presentation at the InfoComm stand. Spend quality time with fellow attendees, share stories, and most of all, celebrate the fact that we work in such an exciting field. If advancing the AV industry in Europe excites you as much as it does me and everyone else at InfoComm, the extra time at ISE 2016 will be time well spent.

08 OPINION: CEDIA

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

We’re set to build on a dynamic 2015 Vin n Bruno, CEO of CEDIA, shares the association’s plans to support the growing residential technology channel and looks forward to innovations likely to make an impact at ISE 2016 and beyond First things first: let me say how delighted, honoured and humbled I felt to take the position of CEO of CEDIA in September 2015. As the global association that represents the home technology industry, CEDIA holds important responsibilities; to be the connector, to provide vision, leadership, and education that elevates the entire residential custom installation market. I could not be happier to have the opportunity to lead the organisation, to help build on its solid foundation and position it for the future on a platform of vision, collaboration and passion. It’s clear to me that CEDIA is an inclusive body for installers, distributors and manufacturers operating at all levels of the market. Whenever and wherever home technology is professionally installed, be it in fully integrated homes, super-yachts and premium-end luxury cinemas or multiple developments, midmarket apartments and family media rooms, CEDIA is there to offer the resources for growth for both manufacturers and home technology professionals.

CEDIA EMEA 2015 has proven to be a landmark year for the body. Right now, membership of CEDIA EMEA stands at an all-time high of 720 companies. It’s a membership that reaches far beyond the UK to embrace 40 EMEA countries. Companies from outside the UK make up more than 40% of our total EMEA membership. It’s no surprise that these non-UK members are also the fastest growing component in our global CEDIA membership, which is now approaching 4,000 companies. As such, we have a responsibility

Pre evie ew Edition 2016

to deliver on the benefits of membership by providing valuable, localised training and creating useful resources, documentation and white papers available in multiple languages. This support is not only vital, but valued by members and new companies that are interested in breaking into the sector. CEDIA’s Smart Home Recommended Wiring Guidelines document has proved to be the most popular document in our library of resources, with over 4,000 downloads since its 2012 launch. This resource is currently available in English, French, Spanish, Italian and Polish. To date, a total of 14 documents have been translated into multiple languages, including Dimming LED Lamps, HDMI Installation Best Practices, Network Security Best Practices and Selecting Display Size based on Room Size and Seating. Expect more for 2016. In 2015, CEDIA has taken its training on the road to France, India, Poland, Spain and South Africa to support CI expansion in these markets. More international training will take place in 2016, beginning at ISE 2016 with a comprehensive programme of invaluable training courses available from world-class instructors – turn to page 29 for details.

BRAND STRATEGY 2015 has also seen the launch of our new brand strategy and visual identity. Both were many, many months in the making. We wanted to dig deep and understand the CEDIA membership, the ways we were meeting their needs, and the places where we could improve. Out of our research, we’ve created a strategy to address these needs, some of which will happen quickly and some that will

‘Research tells us that our industry is going to triple in size in just five short years’


OPINION: CEDIA 09 emerge over time. Our areas of focus are building and developing programmes that support a sustaining, year-round community; aligning education programmes to meet the needs of integrators and provide the tools they need to achieve the next level of success; and connecting our integrators and manufacturers to identify and leverage new technology to benefit all. This new CEDIA vision and brand identity will be a major focus at ISE 2016. Research tells us that our industry is going to triple in size in just five short years and it is CEDIA’s responsibility to stay ahead of technology and facilitate success. I want to partner with our manufacturer members on a new level. Initially, those plans hone in on learning about emerging technology trends prior to them becoming public, allowing us to tailor our offerings regarding these new technologies in order to give our member integrators the education and tools they need to profit from them.

TECHNOLOGY TRENDS To that end, there are a number of emerging technologies that will have a significant impact on our industry in the years ahead. ISE 2016 will be a great place to see how these trends are evolving into hardware and software solutions

that integrators will be able to sell. • Video: High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut are two significant changes here, otherwise known as enhanced colour volume. The result will be a picture with increased contrast and colour that will provide a huge and noticeable improvement for the viewer. • Audio: In 2016, immersive audio (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro3D) will grow in popularity among consumers as content and hardware become more readily available. Another trend will be high-resolution audio, with new streaming services supporting 96/24 – watch out for both at ISE 2016. • Voice control: there’s plenty of research going on into deep learning at the moment. As such, voice commands will become much better over the next 12-24 months, making device voice recognition a much more fluid, satisfying experience in the future. • IoE: The Internet of Things is fast becoming the Internet of Everything (IoE) and connected devices will number in the tens of billions very quickly. The IoE is not just about things, it’s about a convenient life at home and everywhere. Information is available on demand and it gives us the power to control our whole world. As such, this points to tremendous opportunities for our members to customise their offerings to homeowners to provide

more robust home networks and to perfect connectivity of all their devices. • Virtual Reality: In 2016, virtual reality, augmented reality, and/or mixed reality will begin to emerge much more strongly in our sector. Hardware will from December 2015 and adoption will pick up throughout 2016. Look out for these products to be the de facto method of demonstration for integrators in three to five years from now.

ISE 2016 As an industry we are embarking on an exciting journey, full of challenges but equally, full of opportunities. The great news is that CEDIA is in better shape now than ever before to support you. My number one priority is communication: I am forward-facing by nature and I want to hear from members and what they need. I will be out proactively working with our members across the globe, but I am also always open for any member to call me at any time. So, please visit our booth at ISE 2016 (1-F21) and talk to me about your experiences and what we can do to help you prosper in this dynamic, new era.

10 ATTENDEE VIEWPOINTS

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Why I’m going to ISE 2016 We asked some leading industry ďŹ gures what they hope to get out of their visit to the show

We are the market-leading AV distributor in Sweden, and so the ISE show has always been an important part of our yearly activity plan. There are many reasons for this, but primarily it is to see and experience new products and solutions, especially within signal distribution and display technology, our two main focus areas. But ISE is not only about products and solutions, it’s very much about meeting people, both customers, manufacturers and other colleagues within the AV industry. At ISE you really have the opportunity to engage in face-to-face dialogues and for us, as part of the larger Exertis Group, ISE is the ideal place to discuss future business and new partnerships together with vendors on a European level. FREDRIK TIDEMAR, BUSINESS DIRECTOR, EXERTIS CAPTECH

ISE is unmissable: it’s the premier AV trade event in Europe and perfect for discovering the latest technology, as well as a great place to meet old colleagues and renewing acquaintances. Our business is delivering the latest digital signage and display technology to demanding clients. We have to establish whether new products are real and available, so that we can be sure that promises we make to our customers can be met. The only way to do that is to establish direct relationships with key personnel; most of whom will be at the show. ISE is critical for product research and evaluation. All manufacturers present their ranges in the best possible way, so direct comparison between vendors at the show is both valuable and reliable. EDDIE BANCE, SALES DIRECTOR, HARP VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS

      

It’s crucial for us at Reex to be at the forefront of technology, to keep our business evolving. This means ISE, the largest dedicated AV show, is a mustvisit event. It’s a showcase for the next generation of products that will ensure our future success. As an integrator we have a role to ensure users understand the latest AV. Not only do we grow our own knowledge at ISE, knowledge we can pass on to customers, we also take key clients to ISE with us. We’ve done this for the last six years, allowing them to experience new developments ďŹ rst hand. Last but not least, ISE is a great forum for supporting our vendor partners and for networking with colleagues and friends from around the industry. ROLAND DREESDEN, MANAGING DIRECTOR, REFLEX

As a project-driven distributor representing several highquality professional AV products, we ďŹ nd that ISE is an ideal opportunity to spend time with the manufacturers we represent, to really get to know them and the intricacies of their products. To talk to the engineers as well as the commercial representatives in an informal and relaxed environment; often over a beer after the show closes. ISE features heavily in our marketing campaigns: allowing us to schedule meetings with key dealers, system integrators and end customers to discuss real, live, project opportunities. With our suppliers on hand, we can visit their stands with our partners and develop solutions in a highly efficient and comprehensive manner. BAUKE VAN DE ZAND, SALES MANAGER, INTRONICS



Pre evie ew Edition 2016













ISE became the most important event in the AV industry; if you are working in this industry it is a must to participate. Also a lot of manufacturers show new technologies and products as it is at the beginning of the year. This year for the ďŹ rst time it will be held over four days, which makes sense as we have seen in previous years that it was impossible to see all the things you wanted to see. As an exhibitor it makes sense, as we will be able to respond to all the meeting requests. ISE is, of course, also a platform to see old friends, colleagues or competitors as the AV industry is a small family. Also this year we will be present with a stand which will give us the opportunity to show our current products and new developments, meet existing partners and customers, and also make it possible for potential new customers to experience our solutions. We have recognised that more and more end-users who have actual projects come to the show and want to decide together with their system integrators which solution is right for their requirements. ERIC HÉNIQUE, MANAGING DIRECTOR, VUWALL TECHNOLOGY EUROPE

Although I plan my ISE visit around future and current projects there will always be added value that I can take away from ISE – an unexpected ďŹ nd, a new bit of kit, a different supplier that I wasn’t looking for. And then, of course, there is the networking! Not just old industry friends but making new acquaintances from parts of the industry that I would never interact with in my day job, opening new sources of information and opportunity. As it’s my birthday on the Wednesday I may also be looking out for invites to the odd party or two! KEVIN MCLOUGHLIN, AUDIOVISUAL MANAGER, ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE/AV USER GROUP


12 CONFERENCES

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Four is the magic number We look ahead to ISE 2016’s four main conferences: the Smart Building Conference and Audio Forum on Monday 8 February, and the Capital Summit and Sports Venue Technology Summit on Thursday 11 February

SMART BUILDING CONFERENCE Conferences, the day will begin with plenary sessions before opening out in a two-track structure – commercial and residential. A fixture at ISE since 2014, the Smart Building Conference returns to Amsterdam on Monday 8 February 2016 with the theme ‘The network is the building’. The conference will look at the AV and IT infrastructure of smart buildings. “A lot of people have no idea what a big topic smart buildings is,” says conference chairman Bob Snyder, editor of Channel Media Europe. “That’s why we’ve been able to tackle totally new areas each year, like energy, lighting and the Internet of Things. This year we’re concentrating on where AV meets IT in the building – and that includes the IT infrastructure and anything that attaches to that infrastructure.” So the scope of this includes “cabling, control, wireless and the supplementary networking technologies that connect to the IT backbone” – such as Bluetooth and NFC. As in previous Smart Building

See Deloitte Deloitte’s new Amsterdam headquarters, known as the Edge, is considered by many to be the world’s smartest and greenest building. It has its own app, which connects and interacts with 2,500 workers on a daily basis – not only providing connected applications for office workers, but even recognising visitors’ cars as they arrive and directing them to a parking space. In one of the Morning Keynotes Erik Ubels, director information technology and workplace services at Deloitte, will discuss the technologies at work in this groundbreaking smart building. The second Morning Keynote will be given by Tom Carroll, head of EMEA corporate research at JLL. In ‘Technology and the Future of CRE’ he will address how corporate real estate will have to adapt to ‘third platform’ technologies

entering the workplace, which will open up new ways of working and consequently affect the way workplaces are designed. Turning to the commercial track: wireless headset manufacturer (and first time ISE exhibitor) Plantronics has done a lot of work researching how office design, and the very nature of office work, is changing. Philip Vanhoutte, the company’s EMEA MD, will present this in a session entitled ‘From Office Design to Soundscaping…’. He will also discuss a Unified Collaborative ITC infrastructure which embraces wearables and contextual intelligence. In ‘The Battle for Smart Building: An Integrator’s Perspective’, Mike Brooman, CEO of Vanti, will argue that new collaborative ways of working are required among smart building stakeholders when commissioning building-wide technology. The blistering pace of development in smart technology, he believes, makes new demands on design, construction and technology teams – and greater mutual understanding is required of what is required, and at what stage of the process.

Additionally, an expert from consulting engineering firm Arup will talk about where AV meets IT in the smart building. Residential trends The residential track will be chaired by Kris Hogg, chairman of CEDIA. This will commence with a Keynote from Dave Pedigo, senior director of learning & emerging technologies at CEDIA. ‘Technology and the Home in the Year 2020’ will look at the innovations that are shaping the home of the future, including contextual awareness and the intuitive home, and delivering the ‘life lived best at home’ experience. In ‘New Era of Data-Driven Lighting Services’, Bluetooth Smart will come under the spotlight. This connection technology – also used in smart watches and activity trackers – can also be used to synchronously control 500 lights in a hotel lobby or set up an advanced building automation system. Because it enforces all layers of the communications stack and makes the onboarding process part of the standard,

Bluetooth guarantees interoperability. This session will be presented by Szymon Slupik, president and CTO of Silvair. Later on, Philip Vanhoutte of Plantronics will switch tracks and present ‘Meet the Smart Home Client – a 15 Year Flashback’. Here he will outline his personal quest for a smart home: how he scouted the different options among technologies and installers; how design and implementation progressed; some ‘disappointments, frustrations and resurrections’ when reality set in; and he will conclude with recommendations, wishes and food for thought. Additionally, CEDIA’s Kris Hogg will talk about the ‘top of the range’ of the smart-home business – the connectivity requirements of multi-dwelling units. This is a completely distinct market from owneroccupied residences, with different stakeholders and different user requirements. To register for the Smart Building Conference, go to

AUDIO FORUM

Organised by Italian publication Connessioni in conjunction with Integrated Systems Europe, the Audio Forum makes its third ISE appearance in February with a wide-ranging theme of ‘Theories, Technologies, Legends and (True and False) Myths about Audio’. Devised to appeal to systems integrators, installers and other audio professionals, the programme will acknowledge the complexity of acoustical science and systems specification with a series of presentations and discussions. “In contrast to previous editions, which had more of a purely academic feel, at ISE there will be a greater opportunity for discussion between attendees and speakers in order to better understand some of the technologies that shape our industry,” says Connessioni’s Chiara Benedettini.

acoustic designer and consultant Donato Masci – who will contribute throughout the day – will examine modern loudspeaker technologies and, in particular, those scenarios where line array technology isn’t necessarily able to address all of the coverage issues in a venue. They will consider the tools and techniques available to engineers that can help provide those essential fixes. In an extension to this subject area, the second session will examine some key issues surrounding filtering technologies, particularly Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) and Finite Impulse Response (FIR). “They are now present on every datasheet and constitute a major point of discussion between industry colleagues, but there is still a lot of confusion about their usage, so we aim to clear up some of those issues,” says Benedettini.

Modern speaker technologies Taking place on Monday 8 February in Rooms G001 and G002, the fullday programme will run from 10:00 to 17:00. Moderator/chairman for the day will be pro-audio system designer and Audio61 principal Guido Diamanti. In the first of four primary sessions, speakers including leading

CAPITAL SUMMIT 2015 saw the first Capital Summit to be hosted at ISE – and it’s back by popular demand on Thursday 11 February at ISE 2016. If you missed it last year, you need to know that it’s designed, among other things, to bring together companies looking for investment with financial professionals and business experts from the world of investments, mergers, and acquisitions, including equity funds and strategic investors. It’s hosted by John Stiernberg of Stiernberg Consulting and MediaBridge Capital Advisors. Stiernberg Consulting has a 20+ year track record in helping AV and IT companies succeed. “The first Capital Summit at ISE was a solid success,” smiles Stiernberg. “The panel members represented a fascinating and relevant mix of strategic, financial and hybrid investors, each with stories to tell and unique perspectives on the AV/IT industry. The audience was also diverse and asked great questions during the interactive Q&A session. The

networking session lasted long after the bar closed – another good indication that the event accomplished what we set out for it to do.” While the basic event format will remain the same at ISE 2016, the panel members will be all new compared to the 2015 line-up. This, according to Stiernberg, will assure a fresh and current perspective. Interesting developments The year since last ISE has seen some interesting developments for Stiernberg Consulting, with more IPTV and video firms joining the company’s growing client list; an increase in interest from international – i.e. non-US – organisations; and a great deal of focus on the rapidly changing dynamics of an industry which is seeing the previously disparate worlds of AV and IT learning how to work together and complement each other’s skills. Stiernberg also co-produced and moderated the Capital Summit at CEDIA Expo during 2015.

also assess how end-users should interpret the data and extract what they need from it in order to optimise their applications. The final primary session will return to a topic that has been a significant element of previous Audio Forum events – audio networking transportation. With the AVB/TSN standards continuing to achieve traction, and the AES67 standard enjoying dramatic adoption during 2015, networked audio is increasingly reaching across applications and user groups. “We plan to take a comprehensive look at the latest developments in transportation protocols, touching on trends, individual perspectives and more,” notes Benedettini. “After many years of progress, some of these protocols have really started to achieve mass adoption, while others have only partially achieved their goals. In this session we will look at the ‘whys’, ‘wherefores’ and ‘what nexts’ of audio transportation.” The day will conclude with a

further networking opportunity over coffee and a thorough Q&A session. In addition to Masci – who is the acoustic designer and consultant at Studio Sound Service in Florence, Italy, and has worked in fields including acoustic correction and noise emission impact – there will also be participants from the AES, who have joined a number of previous Audio Forum events. Connessioni will also be announcing a full line-up of sponsors in due course.

“Like ISE in February, the interaction between the panel and the audience was excellent,” notes Stiernberg. “Overall, the buzz surrounding CEDIA Expo was strong, indicating a stabilising US market for residential systems.” Stiernberg says that going into the 2015 Capital Summit at ISE, he was cautiously optimistic about the AV and IT industry’s ability to attract and retain the capital needed for both innovation and sustainable growth. Now he’s even more confident that qualified investors are not only interested, but in it for the long haul.

“Take ISE 2015,” he says. “There were a few companies in the audience that were just starting the process of developing an exit strategy and preparing for selling. They learned a lot about how to think about the process, how long things take, and how to prevent the mistakes that so many others have made. “And,” Stiernberg goes on, “for seasoned investors, quite a few personal connections were made. “The most gratifying thing for me,” he continues, “is when an audience member comes up to me the next day on the show floor or sends an email after ISE and says something like “That was a great event. I was heading down the wrong path and am glad that I learned a better to approach to getting my company ready to sell or refinance. Thank you.””

Essential and sustainable What’s behind that confidence? “Despite global socio-political and economic challenges, our industry provides the tools for communications, life safety and building control,” he explains. “Those are all essential and sustainable compared to adventure travel, gaming, or action sports, for example. There’s nothing wrong with those industries, of course, but in tough times, investors get even more conservative. So: while the amount of funds available is hard to quantify, general availability is good now, and for the near term.” According to Stiernberg, those who attend the Capital Summit see real benefit from doing so.

International locations The ISE 2016 event will be the ninth Audio Forum in total, with the 2015 schedule having visited Milan, Mumbai and Beijing, in addition to Amsterdam. The 2016 agenda is expected to be similarly extensive, and Benedettini is looking forward to a strong first event of the year at ISE. “Audio and sound diffusion are such complex issues,” she says. “From a technical point of view, they are intrinsically related to – and require an understanding

Not just trading cards “The Capital Summit is about much more than just trading business cards and sharing a drink,” he laughs. “Ongoing buyer/seller relationships have started as a result of the event. That’s what it’s all about.” Stiernberg Consulting co-produces the Capital Summit with MediaBridge Capital Advisors and Media Asset Capital. John Bowen of MediaBridge and Stiernberg are the comoderators. Neil MacTaggart of Media Asset Capital (who was a panellist in

of – physics and maths; while from a conceptual point of view, there is a need for design capabilities and a thorough understanding of different audio applications. So this year at ISE, we look forward to delving into the various theories, technologies, legends and myths that surround proaudio – and to discussing and, where necessary, debunking them. “And while we will have plenty of contribution from our expert panellists, there will also be multiple opportunities for attendees to ask questions. A great opportunity, then, to ask about everything you never dared ask about – until now! We encourage everyone who is keen to ensure that they remain up-to-date with the major audio topics to ensure they add Audio Forum to their ISE schedules.” For more information about the programme and sponsorship, contact Chiara Benedettini (c.benedettini@ connessioni.biz; +39 334 7134388).

Summit host John Stiernberg 2015) is, according to Stiernberg, a critically important team member too: he helped recruit and organise this year’s panel, and is well connected in the European broadcast and media community that Stiernberg believes is so important to the growth of AV/IT. “We’re grateful to Mike Blackman, Joe Hosken, and the whole team at ISE for the opportunity to partner on Capital Summit 2016,” concludes Stiernberg. “We’re looking forward to another very successful event.” The Capital Summit at ISE 2016 takes place in Room E102, starting at 14:30 and formally – if not informally – finishing at 17:45. The event is open to all show attendees, but is especially relevant to branded manufacturers, distributors, private equity funds, individual investors and any other industry stakeholders that are interested in building, buying or selling companies.

SPORTS VENUE TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT The ďŹ rst SVG Europe-organised conference event of 2016 will take place on Thursday 11 February during ISE 2016, and is set to examine the changing technical provision and expectations of the contemporary connected stadium. To be held in Room E102 of the RAI Exhibition Centre between 09:30 and 13:30, Sports Venue Technology Summit 2016 features a programme devised by SVG Europe – which is a trade association for professionals working in television sports production – in conjunction with leading audio consultant and project manager Roland Hemming. The founder of RH Consulting, Hemming’s 28-year career in the industry has taken him to live events, construction sites, hotels, rail facilities, cruise ships, theatres, corporate AV, broadcast, education and stadia. Pivotal to the event will be a recurring strand examining the processes and possible challenges involved in making a stadium run smoothly on the day of a major sports event that is being broadcast to national and/or international audiences. A variety of stakeholders will participate in these three sessions, with conďŹ rmed panellists including CTV OB technical director Hamish Greig and Amsterdam Arena production manager Tim Oosterop. Deepening engagement Of course, the sports venue itself is an evolving space, and increasingly the deepening of fan engagement through new technology is the name of the game as sports associations and venue operators seek to maintain the attention of a distracted

populace. This requirement can ďŹ nd fruition in multiple forms – through greater integration of social media and bespoke video into the content relayed on stadium displays, to the ability for fans to access statistics, game highlights and more on their smart devices. Challenges abound in this new connected era – not least the need to guarantee sufficient bandwidth throughout the duration of an event – so this panel session will include a discussion of emerging technologies and techniques that are set to make everyone’s lives easier. Joining moderator and SVG Europe managing editor David Davies will be panellists including NewTek senior director of global product marketing Ellen Camloh, BroaMan managing director Tine Helmle, and Genelec marketing and PR director LarsOlof Janod. Another key session will examine the practicalities of ‘temporary overlay’ – in other words, the elements that are added to permanent buildings to enable the staging of major sports ďŹ xtures or other elements. In this discussion, panellists including The P.A. People managing director Chris Dodds will debate this increasingly hotbutton topic and consider when temporary overlay is absolutely essential, how the cost can be justiďŹ ed to venue operators, and which non-temporary elements are likely to be added to the mix as venues develop during the next decade. The busy half-day programme will also include a keynote conversation with Auditoria director Scott Willsallen, along with several networking breaks. Media partner for the event is Pan Stadia & Arena Management, a leading title for the business of stadias, arenas, sporting events and venues on a global scale.

Roland Hemming of RH Consulting has devised the programme with SVG Busy year ahead For SVG Europe, the Sports Venue Technology Summit is the ďŹ rst event in a very busy 2016 programme that will encompass events in the UK, Ireland, Italy and more. The Association has gone from strength to strength over the last three years, and now counts more than 60 vendors, broadcast service providers and systems integrators among its sponsors. Joe Hosken, SVG Europe general manager, is looking forward to a return visit to ISE after successful venue-oriented

check of what happens in the life of a stadium, and asking what are the key concerns of the different departments before and during an event. It’s amazing to think that some of these people don’t get a chance to talk and understand each other’s requirements. The SVGE summit at ISE 2016 is a chance to ďŹ x that.â€?

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Keynote looks to future ISE is helping exhibitors and visitors make the most of the final day of ISE 2016 with a host of events, activities and initiatives From an inspiring keynote to free parking, the final day of ISE 2016 looks set to be a fitting climax to the first four-day show. On Friday 12 February the Closing Keynote will be given by Dr Michio Kaku, a recognised expert in Einstein’s unified field theory who has unparalleled skill in predicting trends affecting business, commerce and finance based on the latest scientific research. The keynote will be held in the RAI Forum, and will begin at 09:00, half an hour before the show opens. Dr Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York. He received his PhD in physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1972 and been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. He has also taught at Harvard and Princeton and his goal is to complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything”. He is the author of several international bestsellers, including Physics of the Future, which became the basis of a six-hour TV special on the Science Channel

called Futurescape, and Physics of the Impossible. His latest book, The Future of the Mind, details the breakthroughs being made in neuroscience, which are finally beginning to unravel the mysteries of the human brain. Recent scientific advances in brain-machine interface have made possible a form of telepathy, telekinesis, recording and uploading memories, and even photographing thoughts. Dr Kaku also undertakes considerable public speaking engagements on international radio and TV. He frequently keynotes major business conferences focusing on trends over the next 20 years in computers, finance, banking and commerce. Free parking To make it even easier to attend the Closing Keynote, ISE is offering free parking for all attendees driving to the Amsterdam RAI on the final day of the show. Up to 2,500 cars can take advantage of the offer, which will be available from 09:00 on Friday 12 February. Free parking is available to ISE 2016 attendees who enter and

Introducing the 100” dnp LaserPanel

Big, bright and fit for the fight, the first 100” Optical Flat Screen from dnp is now available. The best price-performance for a 100” flat screen dnp LaserPanels offer large high-contrast images at a fraction of the cost of LED-backlit LCD screens. And since the dnp LaserPanel uses a laser projector, low running cost and no lamp changes will drive down the total cost of ownership.

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Four days, four Show Floor Theatres ISE’s Show Floor Theatres have once again been expanded – with audio joining commercial, residential and unified communications as an area of focus As ISE 2016 moves to a four-day show, so it will see the addition of a fourth Show Floor Theatre – the Audio Solutions Theatre, sponsored by Tannoy. Situated on stand 7-Z160, it joins the already established Residential Solutions and Commercial Solutions Theatres, both sponsored by KNX, and the Unified Communications Theatre sponsored by Crestron. All four Show Floor Theatres

will be in operation from 11:00 to 16:30 from Tuesday 9 to Friday 12 February. They will feature up to 150 free-to-attend 20-minute sessions from exhibitors, endusers, trade associations, business consultancies and respected thought leaders. Attendance is on a first-come first-served basis, with capacity limited to a maximum of 60 individuals per theatre.

At the Residential Solutions Theatre (5-S160) attendees will experience case-study presentations looking at the real-world benefits of home entertainment, building automation and energy management systems in a residential environment, while the Commercial Solutions Theatre (8-D360) will focus on the creative and practical aspects of system

design and the customer benefits of new technologies. The focus at the Unified Communications Theatre (9-A140) will be the practical aspects of implementing collaboration and communication systems within enterprises, while audio technological innovation and the practical experiences and challenges of integrating and installing audio in the commercial

and residential sectors will be key to presentations at the Audio Theatre. All four Show Floor Theatres have been conceptually designed and executed by event management specialist Improve and will feature the latest in AV and live technology.

So You Need to Interface With BMS? Speaker: Dave Robinson, Sensible Heat Building management systems (or BMS) is a catch-all term that covers electronic controls used to control mechanical services in buildings; very common in commercial buildings, BMS is now increasingly being found in many high-end residential properties. Traditionally supplied by specialist contractors as part of the mechanical package, custom installers are often required to interface with these systems, or sometimes asked to provide the BMS themselves. This course will explain what systems are typically covered by a BMS, and why there is a requirement for a dedicated specialist system, with its special HVAC functions and algorithms.

How to Work Profitably with Architects Speaker: David Graham, Grahams Hi Fi

Systems integration is seen by many as the jewel in the crown of the custom installer. This course will take an in-depth look at all of the sub systems that make up a typical CI project. Understanding each system’s components, communications and demarcation points will enable you to design, install and program jobs successfully to practical completion. The day will consist of design fundamentals, communications protocols and user interface design, as well as third party integration best practice policy and regulations.

On larger installation projects you will find an architect and probably an interior designer too. This course will help you understand how to be taken seriously as part of the design team. We will cover understanding the key stakeholders in a project and identifying the decision maker. We will cover many of the issues about ownership of the project, how you can work effectively with other design professionals, and how to achieve repeat business from these professionals.

Our ability to support and maintain security, control and media delivery in the connected home through remote network-based systems, port forwarding routes and VPNs, relies on the bandwidth available from service providers. Increasingly this is insufficient for proper diagnosis and resolution. Furthermore, the slow migration to IPV6 by ISPs has led to the introduction of CGN (Carrier Grade NAT)/NAT444, which ‘breaks’ the whole concept of inbound port forwarding and VPNs. We need a better answer.

This allows the specifier and user to freely select products in the marketplace without needing to be concerned about which network he or she is using. This session will give an overview of what AES67 is, how to use it in your products or projects, and who is using it. An introduction to the Media Networking Alliance, the trade association that supports AES67, will be included.

A container is a metafile, a file that can store multiple types of data in a structured format. A video container holds all the different files and data the player requires to play the video. This may include one or more audio channels, one or more videos, graphics files, metadata and data files. Metadata ID ‘data about data’ is a data structure that organises information the player may need, including, but not limited to, timing information, window size, what codec(s) is being used, titles, program information, bookmarks and closed captioning. This presentation will explain the concept, function and various types and uses of containers employed in AV media streaming today. It will clear up the differences between container and codecs and help the student understand the underlying technology in delivering AV content.

Creating Common Sense: the Importance of Site Surveys Speaker: Brad Malone, MA, PMP, Navigate Management Consulting Site surveys are an incredible client education tool, yet many AV integration companies (and account managers) see them only as a form to be filled out as part of the internal proposal process. These companies miss a golden opportunity to educate their clients on the true complexity of the undertaking and how the integrator will manage key interdependencies to alleviate chaos and blame later in the project. What is usually conveyed to the client, the engineer and the project manager is how simple this project will be – with the complexity, missed client expectations, and change orders showing up later.

Drone Arena debuts in 2016 An exciting new addition for the 2016 edition of ISE is the Drone Arena, hosted by Stampede Global. Located at Park Foyer (outside the back of Hall 8), the arena will welcome leading manufacturers and the latest product innovations in drone technology, and will cover professional, commercial and consumer opportunities. It will feature education sessions and live demonstrations on every day of the show. With huge growth predicted in the use and application of drone technology, Kevin Kelly, Stampede president and COO (pictured), believes the AV/IT integration industry is perfectly poised to take advantage: “The great thing for our industry is, in a B2B world you need a consultative

sales process to make this thing work. Not every end user has the same needs, desires or goals, and so it’s not something that can be satisfied through the normal retail channel. The companies that are operating in the military channel don’t have the right mechanisms in terms of the way they go to market, so it’s really perfect for our industry. Video and B2B is our industry; we’re already trusted advisors.” Visitors will also have the chance to win a drone. Simply drop your business card into the box at the Drone Arena, which will be in place from the start of the show on Thursday 11 February. The winning business card will be drawn at midday on Friday 12 February. The winner must be present to claim the prize.

48 EXHIBITOR NEWS: AV-IT

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

There are over 1,000 exhibitors at ISE 2016, so the number of products on display at the show must run into five figures. Over the next few pages, we highlight some of the key technology categories at the show, and present a small selection of new products that have caught our eye so far

IP is everywhere Of all the major themes that will dominate ISE 2016, one is likely to be more widely discussed than any other. The AV industry has transitioned – is continuing to transition – to an IP-based view of the world. Where once, the AV industry was an island of technology, it is now integrating within the broader business technology landscape. Where once, it developed and promoted its own connectivity standards, it is now embracing the network standards of the data centre with audio over IP, voice over IP and video over IP – not to mention IPTV. The AV world is not just moving

away from its historical point-to-point paradigm and becoming networkcentric, but is also emphasising scalability, reliability and remote/ centralised monitoring, for example. Visitors from the IT world will find themselves very much at home. It’s also, unquestionably, a learning opportunity – the chance to find out more about how the AV world will fit with the IT world. Signal switching, for example, is becoming less proprietary and is moving towards standard managed Ethernet switches. Many vendors will be showcasing products specifically designed to transmit video

Visitors to ISE 2016 from the IT world will find plenty of tech with which they’re familiar, believes Ian McMurray – plus lots of new discoveries as well

and audio over an existing Cat-based network. The show also plays host to a wide range of existing and newfor-ISE KVMs, scalers, transmitters/ receivers, extenders, media servers, cables and media players – the majority of which can expect to find themselves attached to an IP network, not to mention countless projectors and displays. Beyond specific products, ISE also offers the opportunity to ascertain the likely impact of applications such as digital signage and unified communications on the corporate network. And speaking of unified

our transportation networks, our roads, our communications, essential services like water and power, and our out-ofhome security. This means that control room displays have to be completely reliable and capable of continuous, fault-free operation for very long periods of time. Secondly, control rooms are usually 24/7 environments, in constant use. The world does not stop to allow a systems integrator to service a screen, fix a problem or upgrade to cope with new requirements and new challenges. As well as reliability, the ability to adapt to new challenges is vital. Thirdly, control rooms represent major capital investment, with an expected average lifespan of twenty years or more. There are few manufacturers substantial enough to be able to guarantee support of an installation over that kind of timeframe. Finally, control room installation or refurbishment projects are expensive in terms of downtime and labour costs. An integrator has to be sure that their proposed solution is going to deliver straight out of the box, because there is no room for error. The complexity of control room data infrastructure can potentially mean a great deal of uncertainty as to how a system will perform in any given

learn more about the work going on to develop cross-industry standards such as the HDBaseT Alliance, the AVnu Alliance, RAVENNA, and Audinate’s Dante, among others – either from the organisations themselves, or from the vendors’ perspectives – and the likely impact of these in an IP-centric future. One major audiovisual manufacturer may have adopted as its slogan “AV for an IT world” – but ISE 2016 will provide compelling evidence that that’s a tune that virtually the entire industry is dancing to.

Why specialisation is critical for control room display ISE is a stunning spectacle of ultra-modern technologies - a place where visitors come to feast their eyes on the latest displays and AV systems. Mitsubishi Electric has been a supporter of ISE since the beginning, and in that time we’ve both seen and experienced big changes in technology and in how it is applied in the context of our industry. If I were asked to sum up in one word how Mitsubishi Electric’s product range has evolved since we began exhibiting at ISE, that word would be ‘specialisation’. Mitsubishi’s core business is large-scale engineering projects such as power generation, transportation infrastructure, telecoms and factory automation. Our professional video wall displays business grew out of those activities, and over time has become increasingly focused on developing solutions for the most demanding control room display applications. Control room display has become a highly specialised area, requiring particular expertise on behalf of both integrator and hardware manufacturer, and there are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, control room applications are always concerned with the safety of critical systems. Systems that we all rely on for our daily lives;

communications… There is also growing awareness of the potential impact of growing volumes of video traffic over the network – a phenomenon that will grow not only because of the increasing use of video, but also higher resolutions and deeper colour spaces (‘high dynamic range’ – HDR) meaning higher data rates (often requiring minimal latency): as such, codecs like H.265 are receiving significant attention in order to mitigate the impact. It’s not just the networking standards, but other open standards too. ISE also provides the chance to

Peter van Dijk Senior business development manager, Mitsubishi Electric Europe application. Mitsubishi Electric’s product development plan is based around facing these challenges. We have moved towards designing ultra-reliability video wall displays based on LED and DLP technologies, designed to operate continuously for over a decade with no maintenance - the latest generation of which, the WE120U, will be revealed at ISE 2016. We’ve moved towards modularity and the adoption of industrystandards such as DisplayPort and OPS to ensure maximum versatility. We are now working far more closely with major screen controller vendors such as Bilfinger Mauell, Datapath and Advantech to ensure fast, efficient commissioning with no compatibility problems. Underpinning all that is Mitsubishi Electric’s 100 year track-record of product refinement and customer support. We look forward to welcoming visitors to Hall 2 to see the fruits of those endeavours.

TDM750 makes its debut BLUEBELL OPTICOM Making its debut at ISE is the TDM750 from Bluebell Opticom, a rack-mounted solution for the transport of HD-SDI and 100BaseT Ethernet signals. Requiring only two fibres with an option for single-fibre operation, the TDM750 is perfect for smaller robotic/ POV camera systems that need only a single video path and bidirectional data via Ethernet. The unit can be used in concert halls, broadcast and security applications. Also being showcased are the BC and BN Series that allow customers to choose the signals they need in convenient, robust, throw-down packaging that can be ordered in multi-

mode, single-mode and CWDM variations. The BC323 converts two independent 3G-SDI, HDSDI, SD-SDI, or ASI signals onto fibre. Each signal is then received, auto-sensed, equalised, and re-clocked prior to conversion back into an electrical signal. This product is ideal for the point-to-point transfer of high bandwidth signals over fibre, Bluebell Opticom says. The BC550, also on show, is similar to the BC323 but also includes a reverse path for audio or control data on a second fibre.

50 EXHIBITOR NEWS: AUDIO

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Sounds like progress ISE 2016 visitors can expect to see plenty of evidence to underline the rapid progress of audio over IP, as well as the continuing evolution of loudspeaker technology and the rise of immersive sound environments, writes David Davies Regular visitors to ISE will be well aware that IP-based networking has been a prevalent theme at recent shows. They are also likely to be unsurprised by the news that AoIP is again set to dominate the audio-related headlines at ISE 2016. Underlining many of the developments showcased at ISE will be the AES67 standard, which guarantees certain interoperability requirements between existing IP-based audio technologies. A 22-device demo at an event in New York last September

indicated the extent to which leading manufacturers are now supporting the standard, so expect to see more compliant products announced during ISE week. And although it might be a little too early for specific vendor announcements, there is likely to be plenty of conversation on the showfloor about AES70 – the forthcoming proposed standard which is based on the work of the OCA Alliance and defines a scalable control-protocol architecture for the control and monitoring of professional media

networks. But while the continuing stream of MADI-supporting products will ensure that connectivity won’t be entirely dominated by IP-based developments, networking will by no means be the only ‘trending’ audio topic at ISE 2016. The increased popularity of selfpowered loudspeakers for a wide variety of install applications has been a recurring theme of recent years, and one should expect this to continue at February’s gathering. This development has obviously represented a challenge for

Compact weatherproof speakers expand flagship range COMMUNITY PROFESSIONAL Five new Compact models, as well as weather-resistant options featuring PolyGlas outdoor enclosure technology, have been added to the I Series engineered loudspeaker range. The Compact loudspeakers are designed to match the performance, appearance and voicing of the larger I Series Point Source and subwoofer models. Community claims that all products in the Compact I Series have best-in-class LF extension, sensitivity and maximum output, for high-quality sound whether used as fill speakers or in distributed applications. The 6.5in IC6-1062 features a high LF extension for its cabinet size and a very wide dispersion fabric dome HF on a shallow waveguide, which the company says provides a pleasantly smooth response while retaining high sensitivity. The single 8in IC6-1082 and symmetrical dual 8in IC6-2082 are each available with two rotatable horn patterns paired with a low distortion, high output

The RedNet AM2 stereo audio monitoring unit combines headphone and line outputs for flexible monitoring of signals sourced from the Dante network. The latest in a line of Dante AoIP products from Focusrite, RedNet AM2 features a quarter-inch frontpanel headphone socket plus a pair of balanced line outputs with male XLR connectors mounted on the rear panel, which can be used for loudspeaker monitoring and other applications. RedNet AM2 is planned to ship in spring 2016. Focusrite says the headphone socket delivers significant audio output power, sufficient to drive even high impedance headphones at

All Compact I Series are available in a standard black or white painted finish, and with or without a 70V/100V autoformer. U-Brackets for installation are included, while Vertical Yokes are sold separately. Community is also introducing optional weather-resistant PolyGlas enclosures for all of its I Series 800Level and 600-Level loudspeakers, including the new Compact models. The company says that in contrast to fibreglass-covered wood enclosures, which entail long manufacturing lead times, Mil Spec 810G-tested PolyGlas cabinets reduce lead times considerably and are ‘virtually immune’ to the

destructive effects of moisture and temperature cycling. The PolyGlas cabinets are constructed from a dense structural-grade composite embedded with dual layers of fibreglass cloth. Finished cabinets are heavily coated with exterior-grade grey paint and UVresistant top coat, while dual-layer powder-coated marine-grade aluminium grilles backed with NeverWet-treated acoustic fabric provide additional protection for the inherently weather-resistant drivers. Custom colour options and colour-matched stainless steel accessory U-Brackets are available for all Weather-Resistant I Series models.

52 EXHIBITOR NEWS: DIGITAL SIGNAGE

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

What’s new? What isn’t! As the digital signage market matures, it’s seeing new technologies, new products, new entrants and new alliances as, Ian McMurray finds out The buzz-phrase in digital signage you’re most likely to hear at ISE is “the customer journey”. As a concept, it’s been around for a while – but now, as digital signage increasingly enters the consciousness of brands and retailers, it’s being seen as a natural component in how customers find, choose, buy from and remain loyal to them. In the same breath, you’re likely to hear the word “omnichannel” – in other words, the number of ways in which brands can engage and interact with consumers. In technology and product terms, that’s going to mean increased emphasis

on integrating mobile devices with screens – a phenomenon far from unique to digital signage. As the digital signage market grows, it’s inevitable that, in hardware terms, it will begin to fragment as it addresses the specific needs of niche markets. A ‘low end’ and ‘high end’ are beginning to emerge, offering different levels of price/performance. Solutions are, for example, becoming available based on the Raspberry Pi platform, and system-on-chip (SoC) solutions, integrated within screens, are becoming increasingly pervasive.

These are important developments because they’re bringing costs down, making digital signage solutions more widely available. At the other end of the spectrum, users are becoming familiar with the benefits of digital signage and are starting to ask more of systems. That’s driving the high end, with large numbers – 24 or more – of HD outputs, for example. The focus on ‘green’ isn’t going away, either, and that’s seeing growing numbers of manufacturers touting the environmentally friendly nature of their players and screens,

Spark 4G signage player

with lower power consumption. In terms of screens, new screen sizes are starting to emerge with diagonals of, for example, 43in, 48in and 49in, creating new price/ performance points. While this will create new opportunities, it will also create headaches for existing deployments looking to grow. ISE will also see an increasing number of screens with digital signage capability built in – again, creating new opportunities. And speaking of screens… ISE 2016 will see new display devices that extend the reach of digital

signage to, for example, shelf edges, allowing integrators to propose innovative, differentiated solutions. Digital signage software is also undergoing a period of change, with new entrants surpassing the popularity of more-established players, and new alliances being formed between software vendors and hardware manufacturers. There’s also growing emphasis on integrating digital signage into an organisation’s IT system – providing access to, for example, CRM and inventory management/pricing systems.

Digital signage for DIY DIMEDIS

BITVU New at ISE will be Spark, a lowpriced, full-spec 4G digital signage player. Rugged and compact, Spark enables the installation of digital signage in any location, without expensive cabling or broadband contracts, using Bitvu’s network meshing technology. With Bitvu’s cloud-based ScreenSpace server, users can create and upload content from the comfort of their desk, with updates transmitted instantly by 4G to the Spark player wherever it is located in the world. Bitvu’s network technology allows customers to create a group of screens that are served from a single Spark 4G device, relaying content via WiFi or wired Ethernet to multiple connected screens.

The Spark 4G player reduces entry costs into the digital signage world Each group can be configured as individual screens or combined into a videowall, providing good, affordable HD content. Powered by USB, the installation process is simple and an integrated battery option keeps the player running during power outages and alerts the customer to site

issues, such as a screen being inadvertently switched off. Integrated iBeacon technology enables interaction with the content via smartphone apps. Functions such as wayfinding, ticketing or general notifications can be developed.

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

A new era of home entertainment The concept of the smart home has dominated the residential technology debate in recent years, but the buzz around a new generation of home entertainment systems should not be overshadowed, writes David Davies As the notion of the connected residence has gradually morphed into that of the smart home, the ability to forecast the technological infrastructure of the average house ten or even five years into the future has become progressively more challenging. But what does seem fairly certain is that an increasing number of home systems will co-exist on the same network, and that the homeowner will soon have no trouble in controlling pretty much everything from one integrated user interface.

The ability to access entertainment anywhere and anyhow in the home is obviously a major driver here. In particular, ISE 2016 visitors should look out for new developments surrounding wireless audio, with residential customers now facing an increasing array of multiroom solutions that allow them to stream music from their own home network, as well as smart devices and online services. Also on the home entertainment front, expect to see plenty of new

solutions that support 4K UHD. The new format has been on its way towards the mainstream for several years now, but perhaps chastised by their experiences with 3D content producers’ willingness to commit to 4K has been variable until fairly recently. But with 4K streaming services commencing roll-out and a growing number of broadcasters looking to capture major sports events in the new format, the case for consumers to invest is now looking strong. And while prices at the lower end of

the TV set market are becoming more accessible, there will also be plenty of offers to suit the high-end as manufacturers deliver larger screen sizes with capability for 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range). For those viewers who really want to go the extra mile, then an immersive audio infrastructure that ensures the sound is every bit as impactful as the visual is increasingly de rigueur. Immersive audio – or 3D Audio or Next Generation Audio, as you may prefer – is already a reality The KP-6 keypad is designed for use with the Mirage Audio System

Keypad gives instant access AUTONOMIC Receiving its European debut at ISE 2016 is the KP-6 decora-style in-wall keypad for the Mirage Audio System from Autonomic. The KP-6 keypad is designed to provide users with instant access to basic features of their whole-house

entertainment system without having to open an app on their phone or tablet, providing fingertip control of power on/off, volume, source and track skip – as well as four userprogrammable preset buttons. Once content has been curated using the Mirage Media Controller app for iOS or Android devices, users

can simply press and hold to store that programming as a preset. Presets can be anything, from a Pandora or SiriusXM radio station to a playlist or a favourite album. Out of the box, all presets will be the same from zone to zone, but

integrators can provide additional service to their customers by customising keypad zones and preset groups via Autonomic’s web

in the cinema world, with new installations being announced on a continual basis. But now it is arriving in the home, and is set to receive a further impetus as broadcasters begin to implement technologies that will allow viewers at home to configure an audio mix to suit their own preferences. ISE 2016 visitors should therefore be prepared to see plenty of new solutions that promise not just to revolutionise the way we watch, but the way we listen as well. configuration page, giving users four unique presets for each zone. The keypad requires a single Cat5 connection, which even accommodates the KP-6’s built-in IR repeater for control of an external device.

Music server and amplifier launched for Asano BASALTE Claimed to be the world’s first native KNX multi-room audio system, Asano amplifies and distributes uncompressed hi-fi music in residential installations. Now Basalte says it is completing the Asano solution by introducing the S4 music server and M4 amplifier at ISE 2016. The Belgian manufacturer says Asano offers “excellent” sound quality in a “virtually unlimited” number of rooms. It allows installers and users to freely locate music sources and amplifiers anywhere in the house. The S4 hosts four digital audio streams with extensive room management tools and user

profile options. It allows users to stream local content from an iOS device to individual rooms, or to multiple rooms at once. Additionally, it can access internet radio stations, as well as access a music library from a NAS. The Asano app and KNX integration offers control of the music; the user interface enables quick access to the most important controls, while keeping all other functions easily accessible. In addition to the S4, Basalte is also presenting the M4 fourzone multi-room amplifier at ISE, featuring integrated 80W ICE power amplifiers from Bang & Olufsen.

56 EXHIBITOR NEWS: UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

Reinvention and acceleration The unified communications industry continues to reinvent itself, finds Ian McMurray, with the move away from dedicated conferencing spaces continuing to accelerate In a recent survey of 1,000 executives in North America, it transpired that most didn’t know what ‘unified communications’ meant. It would be easy to laugh or shake your head, but it perhaps reveals something important about an industry that still hasn’t completely established itself. Or, perhaps, one that hasn’t finished reinventing itself. Unified Communication – UC – is an industry in transition, and that’s likely to be very evident at ISE. To cloud or not to cloud? Hardware or software? In-house or managed/ SaaS? And what about mobile? For sure, bulky equipment carts

are not the ‘mobile’ that used to be at the heart of videoconferencing systems, and are unlikely to be much in evidence. This year, more than ever, you’ll see a broad range of VC/ UC solutions for a variety of use cases – from purpose-built videoconferencing rooms to the increasingly popular huddle rooms and on through desktops to tablets and phones. If anything, so-called huddle room appliances seem likely to dominate, with dedicated displays, cameras, processors and audio. Adapting UC for specific classes of user, rather than general purpose,

all-singing, all-dancing systems, is also likely to be a key theme. “Collaboration technology for the workplace of the future is not a one-size-fits-all proposition,” one industry insider recently remarked. There was a time, for example, when UC was all about ‘immersion’ – but that didn’t prove hugely popular, and faded from view. Now, with specific user applications starting to be the focus of manufacturers, immersion is making something of a comeback. In a similar vein, manufacturers are starting to introduce systems that are easily customisable for individual types of user – but that

still maintain uniformity across the organisation. Expect also to hear everyone talking about Microsoft’s Skype for Business – formerly known as Lync – which came to market shortly after ISE 2015, and about WebRTC, with its promise of plug-in free real-time communications, enhanced security and lower cost. Both promise to be highly disruptive, with WebRTC forecast to serve more than six billion devices by 2019. While interoperability has long been the watchword of UC, increasing numbers of manufacturers are looking to

offer a total solution – helping users avoid potentially timeconsuming integration issues. That will see new hardware devices like intelligent cameras that automatically focus on the speaker, or multiple cameras built into screen bezels or systems that can ‘recreate’ the transmitted image to make best use of multi-screen systems. Other hardware developments are likely to include growing numbers of integrated audio/video/ content sharing devices that can turn any room – including those not natively equipped with video facilities – into a UC room.

Pro Capture Family presented Making listening smarter MAGEWELL Pro Capture Family capture cards are being showcased by Magewell. The cards are designed for developers and professional AV applications. A PCIe 2.0 high-speed interface is used to maximise performance, doubling the rate of data transmission compared to the first generation capture cards, with actual rates of between 400 Mbps and 1,600 Mbps. “ISE has always been an exciting event for Magewell because it is a great opportunity to show our products and share thoughts on the development of AV industry,” stated Gloria Cai, marketing group leader at Magewell. “We meet existing clients and business partners at ISE to enhance co-operation and amaze new clients with our products. This year we are proud to present the Pro Capture Family. Although Magewell dongles have always been the users’ favourite, we are sure that the

PLANTRONICS

Pro Capture Family capture cards are designed for professional AV and developers new cards will draw much attention from the visitors.” The Pro Capture cards support NVIDIA GPUDirect and AMD DirectGMA technology. Captured data is transferred directly from the video engine to the graphics memory. This process is done entirely by FPGA, without the use of the CPU. “The frame rate is always a big issue for users, because if it is reduced after the video is captured, the smooth movement cannot be retained,” added Cai. “The output

frame rate Magewell Pro Capture cards can when capturing 1080p 60Hz 8-bit 4:4:4 is 63.9 fps.” Magewell Pro Capture cards have a super-low processing and transmission latency down to 64 video lines. The capture latency of 1080p 60Hz and YUY2 can be lower than 1ms. Pro Capture Family cards run stably on Windows and Linux and Magewell plans to make it compatible with Mac OS X soon.

Go large with the Span WM220i NUREVA The Span WM220i ideation system is a shared digital canvas to be demonstrated at this year’s show. It offers the same software-as-a-service (SaaS) model as its smaller sibling, the WM210i, but extends the benefits for larger in-room teams with two sideby-side panoramic projectors. An image-alignment module melds the projected images into one seamless digital canvas, doubling the visible horizontal space for inperson collaboration. This extended workspace, which measures 6.1m x 1.2m, means in-room team members can always see a full 50% of the virtual canvas at once, enabling a broad view

Voyager Focus UC is a wireless Bluetooth stereo headset with active noise-cancellation (ANC) technology designed to reduce noise and distraction in open, collaborative and remote workspaces. Created for enterprise workers in an open office or other loud environments, who want to eliminate background noise on calls or during focus time, it provides all-day comfort and includes intuitive smart sensor technology, audio alerts and wideband audio and hi-fi stereo sound. “No one can dispute the positive impact a great audio experience has on effective communications and collaboration,” said Rich Costello, senior research analyst at IDC. “But audio experiences are increasingly being challenged, especially as traditional office environments expand to include workers in more remote and non-traditional, openoffice environments that introduce more external noise factors.”

Voyager Focus UC makes it easy to stay focused and to hear and be heard Voyager Focus UC headsets are designed to deliver superior audio on both sides of the call. The immersive on-ear design means that many high frequency noises like office sounds and voices are reduced in volume. Bill Loewenthal, VP of enterprise solutions management at Plantronics, said: “We adapted our best-of-breed microphone technology with improved algorithms to ensure clarity of the user’s voice, while suppressing background noises and tuning the audio listening profile to ensure that your favourite playlist sounds dynamic and impressive.”

58 EXHIBITOR NEWS: SMART BUILDING

For the latest show news and updates follow #ISE2016

The great unification continues There are bound to be plenty of exciting specific announcements about new smart building solutions, but expect the accelerating adoption of IP to dominate the conversation at ISE 2016, writes David Davies It was apparent at the time of last year’s ISE – and it’s even more evident as the 2016 edition appears on the horizon. The deepening recognition that IP networking provides not just the foundation but also the future of the ‘smart building’ continues to dominate the debate in this increasingly dynamic sector. For proof, just consider the theme of the Smart Building Conference (SBC), a long-running fixture of ISE ‘week’ and this year taking place on 8 February. Entitled

‘The Network is the Building’, the conference will explore “how the IP backbone changes the way we work, the way we live, and the new services now possible with today’s building”. From a new generation of ‘smart lighting’ products to more tightly integrated building-wide control systems, visitors can also expect to see this seismic transition reflected on the showfloor. One inevitable side-effect of this more closely-intermeshed future is a dramatic increase in the

amount of data that needs to be monitored and managed. ‘Big data’ arrives with big expectations – and for many potential customers, at least for now, big uncertainties. The need for solutions that are tapped for smart building applications to be flexible and scalable should be a given at this point, but an increasing abundance of high-profile cyber attacks means that security is destined to rise ever-higher up the priority list. A significant number of stalwart ISE exhibitors have expanded

templates that streamline the set-up of core functionality for home automation systems. The aim is to provide simplicity to the deployment of custom automation systems, making it easier for programmers to deliver 4K video distribution and customised controls that work seamlessly across Crestron Pyng and 3-Series control platforms. As a result, Crestron dealers can roll out fast and personalised luxury automation. They can also deliver a user experience that includes intuitive dropdown and slide-out windows, as well as scrolling lists across all system interfaces.

decisively into the world of big data solutions, and they are likely to have plenty of new offerings – as well as notable real-world case studies – to display at ISE 2016. Given such developments’ huge potential to transform the working environment, it is perhaps unsurprising that public spaces have often been the primary focus of the smart building conversation in recent years. But the inclusion of two tracks at the SBC – commercial and residential – underlines the fact that unified

IP networks and data management have just as many ramifications for the home. The future for this environment resides in solutions that can happily co-exist on the same backbone and allow homeowners to control all the technical parameters of their existence – ideally, from the comfort of their armchair. Therefore, ISE 2016 visitors should expect to see plenty of tantalising signs of how the home might look in five or even just a few years’ time.

Touchpanels for security and smarts DIVUS The Touchzone touchpanel offers the advantages of both tablets and standard touchpanels in a universal wall terminal.

as they can easily be fixed to plaster, wood, or glass. Large area keys allow the end user to conveniently regulate room functions. Optionally, these keys can be laser-engraved or printed with symbols to allocate their functions using the Jung Graphic Tool. Operation of the smart home via a hand transmitter is also possible, enabling the desired function to be

triggered by remote control from any point in the house. For push button sensors – such as held transmitters – addressing, parametrising and diagnosing can be quickly and simply carried out through the KNX wireless USB stick or through the KNX USB data interface. The KNX unit is connected to the wireless system using a media coupler.

UNESCO Special Ambassador Dr Ute-Henriette Ohoven with ISE managing director Mike Blackman Integrated Systems Events will be publicising its latest charitable initiative at ISE 2016. In recent years, its charitable SeeHearTouch work that has subsidised the design, installation and support of cinema theatre systems in children’s’ hospices, with equipment being donated by AV manufacturers. This programme is now being expanded to include the installation and equipping of a new

E-Start-Up Academy in Chisinau, Moldova. The move is the result of a link-up with Education for Children in Need, an international educational programme headed by UNESCO Special Ambassador Dr Ute-Henriette Ohoven. The programme provides educational and vocational training to stimulate social development through the provision of quality education and

gender equality. Since its launch 20 years ago the programme has supported more than 450 different projects in over 100 countries working alongside ‘the poorest of the poor’. Dr Ohoven has been involved with the programme since its inception. The academy will be constructed to provide a base for the running of modern educational programmes that cover web, IT, economics,

marketing and business English. Specifically, the course in Chisinau will cover the basics of economics, accounting and the creation of business plans. Plus, there will be an optional online module designed to lay the groundwork for students to take the InfoComm Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) exam as well as the opportunity to access the CEDIA track of residential networking courses leading to certified networking credentials. Ultimately, the goal of the programme will be that graduates gain the necessary skills and confidence to return to their local community and launch a sustainable micro, small or medium-sized business. The five-week course will seek to train 400 Moldovans annually, of whom 50% will be women. As well as teaching practical business skills there will be a focus on personal development for students. After course completion, local entrepreneurs and businesspeople will mentor graduates to increase their chances of success. ISE’s decision to fund local installers and integrators is to ensure that the academy receives full ongoing technical support once the initial equipment installation has been completed.
